Iceland will majorly dent your wallet, whereas Croatia won't. Croatians are super friendly, and you'll have plenty to see wherever you go. I think it's a pretty easy choice to make!
I haven't been to Iceland, but I love Croatia. (And Slovenia, which probably looks more like Iceland but at half the price.)
Isabel, I have never been to Croatia, but I could have spend 2 days hanging out in the blue lagoon.
Hi Isabel, I also second Iceland. We spent a week there and loved it! There are a handful of things to do in Reykjavik for under $5 and you can't miss the thermal pools as Travis recommended. The landscape is unique and unlike anything else I have ever seen.
Thanks for the advice everyone! I chose Iceland. It is certainly going to be mighty expensive but I decided this once-in-a-blue-moon opportunity was worth the price. (Plus I've got some money saving ideas, like camping out in my rental car. :-) I'll make sure to stop by the Blue Lagoon and Geysir!
Nice choice! By going in April, you'll still be in the low season, which means cheaper car rentals among other things. We used Hertz, but we found out later from a friend about SADcars.com, which from the research we did has the cheapest prices. Also, if you are renting a car, I suggest picking it up/dropping it off at the airport at the time of your arrival/departure. This will save you from having to pay approximately $20-$25 (each way) for the shuttle bus from the airport to Reykjavik. Have fun! And, if you need any more advice, let me know.
